Consider Portland Public Schools in beautiful Portland, Oregon.

Portland Public Schools seeks dynamic professionals who share our passion for educating all students. We want transformational leaders who will:

  • Commit to upholding the PPS Racial Educational Equity Policy.
  • Raise the achievement of all students while narrowing the gaps between the lowest and highest performing students. The Milestone Framework is also a tool to close the gap.
  • Eliminate the racial predictability and disproportionality of which student groups occupy the highest and lowest achievement categories.
  • Support the Superintendent's three key priorities for 2014-2015:
      • Ensure that all students are reading at grade level by the end of third grade.

      • Accelerate the trajectory of the graduation rate increase (now 67%, up 14 points since 2008-09).

      • Reduce out of school discipline for all students by 50% and reduce the disparity of suspensions and expulsions between white students and students of color by 50%.

If you have what it takes to join our team, please apply now for the 2015-2016 school year.
